We present a case of a 40-year-old woman who developed major cardiovascular complications during anaesthesia for an elective clipping of a cerebral arteriovenous malformation. postoperative investigation confirmed the diagnosis of an adrenal phaeochromocytoma. In retrospect, it became apparent that she had experienced a series of potentially life-threatening events over a 20-year period all of which are known complications of phaeochromocytoma. This case highlights the importance of investigating young patients who have unexpected and unexplained cardiovascular events during anaesthesia and surgery.
